You see world´s only lava lake. Stable since decades. Take two minutes of your time. And admire this wonder of nature. Which you have never seen before. Deep in the desert of Ethiopia….
My thesis is:
There where you see the bubbles…. hot gas comes up…. 1200 C hot.
Roughly estimated 50 m^3/s. Day by day. Year by year.
I think that in this long time billions of gas bubbles have molten a perpendicular some meter wide channel.
Through which we could „look“ into earth interior and do experiments:
Temperature depending on depth
Imagine a 200 meter long steel wire from the rim right over the bubble to the other side of ERTA ALE´s crater.
Will a heavy sphere from steel/molybdenum/tungsten on a 100 km or even 200 km long tungsten wire (melting point 3400 C) sink down and down and down towards earth geocenter ?
This is the first KEY HOLE EXPERIMENT.
If successful – there will be many….
Am I the first human beeing who has ever thought this easy idea ?
This experiment has a big scientific value .
Was something like this ever thought, published or performed ?
